Sweet Savior of my soul, tune my heart to listen for the echoes of the eternal sabbath which my body longs for. Let my hope rest in the knowledge that mortality will be swallowed up by forever life. The arrows of death will miss their mark because I am shielded by love divine. While I toil with a draining strength here upon the earth, I set my gaze toward the time when You will give me rest from my labor. Let me serve You eternally, Lord, in perpetual worship. My Lord, I feel the warmth from the sun rising on eternity’s horizon. My heart is drawn to it because the seeds You have planted within my soul grow beneath the nourishing rays of such hope. On this earth my joys are tainted by mortality, but in Your Kingdom I will be fully absorbed in infinite delight. While here my vision is obstructed by sin, in Your eternal presence my eyes will be undimmed in faith realized. Toward that perfect day when You call me home, I will set my hope. All of my night seasons will pass like shadows when I enter the pleasant days You have prepared for Your beloved. In heartfelt gratitude I pray beneath the authority of the Name of Christ and the Word of His power in John 17:3.
And this is eternal life, that they know You,
the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
John 17:3, ESV
